Yesterday I was at the "Agile i Sverige" conference in Stockholm and did a keynote called "Lita på mig – löften och lögner i agila project". In English that would be "Trust me – promises and lies in agile projects".
Here are the slides. The slides are in Swedish (although I ended up doing the talk in English).
I think this topic is interesting and important so I do plan to write some kind of article or summary in english – but no promises :o)
Here’s the abstract in English, just to spark your curiousity:
The agile manifesto says "Customer collaboration over contract negotiation" – but customer collaboration is based on trust. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between promises, estimates, and lies. We will go through some frightening examples and discuss trust in agile projects.
